Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with tibial plateau fractures. The goal is to compare the differences between anteriorly placed (front of leg) femoral external fixator pins and laterally placed (side of leg) femoral external fixator pins. Specifically, we are evaluating how this placement affects the quadriceps muscle and knee function. The parameters that will be assessed are knee function, pain, and range of motion.

Inclusion Criteria: - 18 years of age and above (adult population) - All open and closed tibial plateau fractures Exclusion Criteria: - 17 years of age and less (pediatric population) - Quadriplegic patients - Vascular Injury to Extremity - Ipsilateral femur fractures - Ipsilateral Hip fractures
